Obstacle-free route: Valuenaweg

The Principality of Liechtenstein offers plenty of sightseeing attractions. One of the idyllic routes leads from the tiny, peaceful village of Steg to Valüna. The stretch is set in a wonderful natural world and offers unadulterated relaxation.

From Steg, the countryside is festooned with gentle walking and field paths. The first eye-catcher is the crystal-clear Stausee lake, its shores in places flat and easily accessible, in others overgrown with wild vegetation. The route continues alongside the Valünerbach (stream) passing royal woodland and glades. 

Here and there, huge cliffs tower up out of the forested area while you follow the route alongside the water and into the valley. On the horizon, the impressive panorama is rounded off by the mountain chain. After crossing a pretty wooden bridge over the Valünerbach (stream) the route continues to the Valünahütte (hut). An inviting spot to take a break and enjoy some refreshment. 

The Valünahütte (hut) has sturdy wooden tables and benches, perfect for a comfortable break. Particularly fascinating is the view from the hut to the rear end of the valley. After enjoying the long-distance views, you return to Steg on the same route.

Barrier-free return journey / public transport 
From Steg FL, Tunnel, low-floor buses (Route 21) travel to Vaduz, Post, the Sargans and Buchs SG support railway stations are reached with low-floor buses (both Bus Route 12).
